Gorgeous Joy! I'm still waiting for the coneflower buds to open here. I'm glad they bloom with so little sun, but it takes them much longer to bloom. Is the fourth photo a Joe Pye weed?

Great flower shots! I really like the white coneflower with the green center. Neat!

Brenda Kula said...

Every single year I say I'm going to plant coneflowers...and I still haven't! Yours are so pretty!

Eve said...

Just dropped by from another blog...Cindee's I think...I love your cats and your flowers. You are my kind of blogger.

Chey .. it almost glows eh ? .. the garden can make its own special affects LOL

Hi there Garden Girl .. YES ! I have a big gorgeous Joe Pye ... and it has set flower heads .. now we just wait for them to bloom !
I pinched them back at different levels so they will look more interesting than one straight row of flowers ?

Thanks Cindee .. late summer and Autumn are my favorite times .. well, Autumn more so for cooler temps ? LOL

Gail said...

Amy said...

Love these photos! I think my coneflower just might flower this year after all. They're putting up some tall, thick stalks now from the base of the plants.

So you have a goose neck to go with your goats beard :)

I stuck out my goose neck today so you can visit anytime and call me a conehead.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Gorgeous photos, Joy! Is that a yellow coneflower in the third photo? I can see why you like your "Karly Rose."
Glad to hear the raccoon tale had a happy ending:)

Joanne said...

Hey Joy, Just stopped by to take a look at the flowers! They're so pretty, and really, they seem to have a personality all their own, don't they? Haven't bought our new ornamental grass yet - MUCH too hot to be in nurseries this weekend. Hopefully soon!
